Wine Advocate

96+ Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "You just can't beat the purity of the bouquet here: cherries, red licorice, blue flowers and currants. It's all stunning. Il Marroneto's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a light garnet color with faint ruby highlights. The wine never veers from its lanes, sticking to an absolutely traditional and fresh expression from the appellation. It offers a lean to medium-weight mouthfeel with radiant fruit flavors-think pure cherry fruit. Fruit is harvested from a five-hectare parcel at 300 meters above sea level with calcareous sand and Galestro soils. These conditions lead to the aromatic intensity of the wine, and that's the main takeaway in this classic vintage. There is a moment of softness that expands quickly over the palate. These results are graceful and gorgeous....This is another set of amazing wines by Alessandro Mori. Like in the unforgettable 2010 vintage, these expressions from 2015 stand out for their extreme purity." 1/20.

Vinous Media

94 Points, Ian D'Agata, Vinous: "Very lively red. Aromas of raspberry, blood orange and herbs. Sneaky concentration and complexity to the very pure flavors of red berries, blood orange and herbs. Tight with firm tannins on the clean, steely finish." 4/20

Wine Spectator

95 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: "There is an inherent sweetness to this red, courtesy of the ripe strawberry and cherry fruit, complemented by mineral, tobacco and wild herb notes, balanced by a backbone of dense, refined tannins. Shows fine balance and length. Best from 2023 through 2040." 03/20.
